School History

Annunciation is one of two Catholic Primary schools in the Parish of Kingsville. Our sister school in the parish is Corpus Christi, Kingsville.

 

Annunciation is situated in Nolan Ave. - a quiet location off Millers Road between the Westgate freeway and Geelong road


Annunciation School was established in the mid 1960s to provide a second school in the Kingsville Parish. The early school catered for up to 200 students, many of the children attending from the migrant hostel on Millers Rd. The hostel was closed in the early 1970s and since that time the school enrolment has ranged from 60 to 110. We currently have approximately 65 students enrolled. The Josephite Nuns administered the school up until 1980. Since that time we have had five principals: Miss Lorraine Buntz, Mr Brian Booley, Mr Dan Mogg, Mr Mark Freeman and Mr Barry Ennis.

 

The school has a diverse population with over fifteen nationalities represented among our families. Most children were born in Australia, and many children benefit from exposure and use of another language at home.
